I cant believe all you people are complaining about a bleeding fm radio on a smartPHONE!!! Who really listens to radio? Listen to your music and watch tv for news and weather streamed to your phone, I do via my LTE connection :-) also ip58 waterproofing and dust proofing affects sound quality check gsms comments on the xperia z1!!! Lastly if you are stupid enough to drop your £700 gbp phone in water uninsured then more fool you! If you want fm radio with rds etc buy one for gods sake and keep your phone SMART!

I can guarantee this isn't company policy and Samsung's C.E.O wouldn't be too happy as they crave more market share minute of the day.Have an s4 but blown away by mega spec so s4 will have to go..

Hi ppl..... i was just wondering...is it necessary for a phone to have a FM Radio....i mean..just bcoz Note 3 doesnt have it...doesnt mean its bad.... I just read the reviews of Note 3 by GSMARENA...and it looked really nice to me... i have almost made up my mind to go with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3...but again have doubts...can someone help me out? -_-
Fm radio makes a difference, and its a useful app, I' ll stick to my N2

As far as the note 3 goes the only saving grace is if they launch a N9005 Duos with IP 58 certificate
This phone has everything MOST PEOPLE need. FM radio and waterproof (IP certified) may be a need for some people. But as far as phone sales go, waterproof phones never really sold very well. Millions more phones that people like are NOT waterproof. And even the latest non FM capable flagships are meeting sales expectations. What some people are doing are citing niche market requirements and passing them off as absolute necessities.
GN3 - no fm radio - ppl complain
iP5s - no fm radio - no ppl complain
can anyone tell what is happening?
Does the smart gear include during buying?
is there neccesary to have smart gear?
does samsung note 3 also smart sensor?

We do not recommend the Samsung fans to buy this phone. As there is no other difference in our Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 except for the screen size difference, we not recommend this phone for our long lasted Samsung fans.
